What Is Armour Thyroid?

Armour Thyroid is used to treat hypothyroidism.  This brand name medication is offered in different strengths. Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland is underactive. A natural desiccated thyroid extract is a treatment made from dried animal thyroid glands. Usually made from the thyroid glands of a pig, Armour Thyroid works by replacing the hormones that your thyroid gland is unable to produce. 

 Desiccated thyroid treats hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone). Desiccated thyroid is also used to treat or prevent goiter (enlarged thyroid gland), and is also given as part of a medical test for thyroid disorders. This should not be used to treat obesity or weight problems. It is not known if Armour Thyroid is safe and effective in children younger than 6 months of age.

Desiccated thyroid is not expected to be harmful to an unborn baby, but your dose needs may be different during pregnancy. Inform your Primary Physician should you become pregnant while taking this medicine. Small amounts of desiccated thyroid can pass into breast milk, but this is not expected to harm a nursing baby. However, do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

Certain medications (cholestyramine, colestipol, colesevelam, antacids, sucralfate, simethicone, iron, sodium polystyrene sulfonate, calcium carbonate, orlistat) can decrease the amount of thyroid hormone that is absorbed by your body. If you are taking any of these drugs, separate them from this medication by at least 4 hours.

 Although Armour Thyroid helps with the effects of hypothyroidism, the side effects that it might cause may be equally as troublesome. Armour Thyroid is used to treat hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism can cause depression, constipation, weight gain, dry skin, and more.
